Sunday, February 7, 2010


The three words that best describe this week are as follows and I quote,

One storm last weekend, followed by another on Wednesday, followed by the "Blizzard of 2010" dropping 26 inches on Friday and Saturday. 
I'm sure that this is the most snow that I've ever seen in my life.  
If you look carefully at the pictures below, you might notice a few differences.
You know... like the road that disappeared, the trees are slightly shorter, the bush closest to the lamp post is no longer visible.  
And we're not done yet!
Looks like we have another storm rolling in on Tuesday!!


 So what do you do with all that snow?
Build the world's biggest snowman snowball.
Nice try, kids!

 And... what do you do when you are snowed in?
Making homemade pizza fills the time and the stomachs.

 Or.... you can take 27 pictures of yourself making weird faces.  

I'm adding this post to weekly winners hosted by Lotus.

I can really see the comparison of the snow fall from one day to another- each day is stunning though. Glad you all could spend the hours making yummy pizza and huge snowballs!

Incredible! Julia is such a ham! Why did she stop at 27? Your snow shots are great. I like the effect(is that the right word?)of the falling snowflakes in your first picture. I don't recall that pizza requires eggs! It looks yummy!

Lindsey said...

I'm so jealous, I would give my right arm for it to snow like that here... well, maybe not. But I'm still jealous.

I love that first snow shot! Looks like you made the best of it.

I've decided I need to be snowed in another day. The roads don't seem safe!

Having been a child in a Military family, I know about the constant travling first hand and appreciate what you and yours have to go through. The photo of the snow is lovely and we are having it here...still hanging around, started Saturday lightly and just seems to keep going. It is supposed to be clearing out on Tues. We made pizza as well yesterday. Was nice to be inside instead of out!

Haa! Love these shots! Looks like you had a great time being stuck in the house and with all the snow! Hope you can dig out soon!
